Participate in Yearlykos 2007 From Your Home

Posted on 08/02/2007. Filed under: bloggers, Democracy for America, democrats, Drinking Liberally, Yearly Kos |

This week, there is a national opportunity for all of us to network with the netroots, connect with progressive partners and share in the spirit that is galvanizing the grassroots.

The YearlyKos blogger / netroots / activist conference takes place in Chicago Thursday – Sunday, August 2-5.  For those of you coming to Chicago, it’s a chance to meet other Liberal Drinkers from around the country.

And for those who can’t make it to the Windy City, you can still join the excitement from your home.

Wherever you are, you can take part in Democracy for America’s Night School this Thursday, 5:30-6:30 Central Time (6:30 Eastern / 3:30 Pacific) — a master class conversation on organizing featuring Katrina Baker, one of our National Directors, Chris Bowers of, and Arshad Hasan, DL Burlington Leader and DFA Training Director.

Night School is DFA’s online training program.  RSVP at http://www.dfalink.c… — they will send you a call-in number to join the national call, and directions on how to access the slides online at the same time.

Be part of the Convention without leaving your home!

If you are in Chicago, or know people who will be, join the events we’ll be hosting and involved with:

– The Living Liberally Caucus, a chance to meet other members of Drinking Liberally and learn more about Eating, Screening, Reading and Laughing Liberally.  Thursday, 11am.

– DFA Night School with

– The Drinking Liberally Happy Hour. Thursday 6-7pm, before the Keynote.

Living Liberally is an official partner of YearlyKos — that means all of you have helped us grow to the point that we are a major partner in the progressive movement.  Thank you for all your help — and enjoy the convention…in Chicago, or online.

Liberally Yours,

The Drinking Liberally National Staff
